Hello everyone at LO!
Concerning all those special characters and even normal characters that are cheesed up on magic items, has anyone tried to field a prince with Null Stone, in order to nullify their effects? It seems like a good enough deal to me to have a prince on a barded elven steed and in heavy armor, shield (2+ armor save)and possibly a sword of might, or the enchanted shield and a lance, that would remove all the effects of the opponents (say Archaon or Malekith) magic items, leaving them empty-handed and exposed:w00t:...
Btw, before i do anything embarrassing, can a character with the null stone have any other magic items or are they cancelled by its effects?
In any case, if facing a special character it should be able to nullify far more than its point cost. It's an enchanted item so a prince can have it..
1. Take a Prince with a Talisman of Saphery, and a Radiant Gem of Hoeth.
2. Choose the spell Walk Between Worlds, from High Magic.
3. Cast spell on Prince in combat.
4. Laugh in your opponents face as their pimped-out Vampire/Chaos/Dwarf Lord flails uselessly against your now invulnerable Prince.
Of course, a lot can go wrong (dispel dice, combat res, etc), but it's worth a go for the expression on your opponent's face. To answer your question, your Prince can't use any other magic item if he takes the Null Stone. He could take it, but it would be useless. Note that it's effects also extend 6" away form him.
But... Walk Between Worlds only makes him ethereal. That won't protect at all against beefed up enemy characters armed with magic weapons or runic weapons...And you have to cast it again each magic phase for it to work in the combat phase.
Anyway, no magic items would demand that he could do some damage with mundane wepaons, which I believe would mean mounting him on a barded steed and arming him with a lance. The problem is that most other races have better stats on their characters than elves, but it could work.. :shifty:
it would work since he talisman of saphery makes magic weapons mundane. However it's a gamble. Your opponent will know that you have that spell and will make sure that's the one they dispel. And it's not even a remains in play. Too risky.
ok, now i see how that could work as well.
However, a prince with null stone would remove the ward save and all other magic items the opponent is carrying beyond their magic weapon, making them easier to defeat. What do you think about using such a character? Is it worth it, and has anyone tried it?
It's too risky with limited use. You will need it when you have to kill a heavenly tooled up lord. Like a chaos lord or a dwarven lord. However the null stone is soo many points that you can't buy any protection or killing power for your prince. without that he is only str 4 and T3. In general if you make him more killy and durable you are better off in most of your games.
